No, the type of organization I'm referring to here has nothing to do with my home and everything to do with my business, because that is where I tend to fail.
Admittedly, I was used to having assistance when it comes to various aspects of my business. When I started out, I employed my husband and my two oldest kids to do a variety of tasks. However, I've been forced to scale back over the years, and now I'm a one-woman show when it comes to the business. If writing was the only thing I had to worry about, that would be one thing. While a well-written book is the key to success, there is a lot that goes into it behind the scenes, a lot of steps necessary to sustaining that success.
I think my biggest obstacle is that when I am in writing mode, I want to write. When I'm not, I'll come up with a million other things to do that don't involve getting my business organized. So I've spent quite a bit of attention to that this year and I'm well on the way to establishing routines and setting up processes to automate and make things easier, if only by small degrees.
I thought I would share a couple of tools I've recently started using that are proving to be crucial to streamlining.
Note: I do not have an affiliation with any of these applications, I simply find them useful.
I'm always looking for suggestions, so tell me which apps help make your life easier?
